This is the end. We’ll wrap things up with a few closing remarks to make you leave feeling warm and fuzzy. Tears might flow, hugs might be exchanged, and then we’ll head to the OCTribe meetup down the road (directions provided).

Morning Break

You didn’t expect a real break did you? We’ll provide coffee and snacks while we invite you to participate in a little competition.  You can join in, chat to colleagues, or check your e-mail.
